FS: Orvis Battenkill 10/11 Disc spey/switch reel
Orvis Battenkill 10/11 disc reel. This is a great reel for light spey or switch rods in the 6-8wt range. I've loved these reels enough that I currently own three of them. I've used these reels on anything from my old 9140 Sage brownie to my 9.5' glass switch rods. These reels hold (spey rated) lines in the 6-7wt range easily. I've used these reels with a Delta Long 6/7, AFS 400gr, Rage 390 gr, 7/8 Windcutter, etc. Reel is 3.75" diameter with a medium width drum. The disc drag is smooth and can be set light or with enough tension to slow a strong fish.
No extra charge for the steelhead mojo, the fish pictured with the reel below was just caught on an OR coastal stream on 5/17/13.
Price $90 US, $5 shipping. Paypal preferred.
